This place is so well worth a visit! There`s so much to browse in the spacious antiques area--from beautifully polished furniture, to quirky *I remember those!* housewares, to affordable vintage fashions, jewelry and accessories. Add to that the best of quality, handcrafted items by local artists and a great team of staff and it`s even MORE worth a visit. But... More

a wonderful hidden gem of a tearoom to be found in this antiques centre. After walking round Ironbridge on a cold damp day to find this tearoom was a welcome relief serving fresh sandwiches baked potatoes tasty soup & an abundance of fresh cakes. Friendly service & very reasonably priced. After warming up it was great to walk round the... More

While Ironbridge is known for it's, well iron bridge, head down the Merrythought Village by Dale End park for mooch around the antique, retro, vintage and craft stalls in the Ironbridge Arts & Antique Centre. The stalls are all owned by small traders so stock changes regularly, some real bargains and quirky items. Make sure you visit the tea room,... More

I visited the antique centre today on the 13th November 2014 with my husband as it was our anniversary and we came across the tearoom which is inside the antique centre. We were greeted by a very friendly lady who served us above and beyond what we needed and had a delightful conversation. We had the best latte and lemon... More

Stopped in here after we saw a sign at the car park. The shop has an interesting selection of crafts and antiques, but what was great was the little cafe. We had a light lunch, but we also noticed the large variety of desserts and drinks available. The service was also fantastic, with great views over the river.

Ironbridge was a little disappointing as it was spread out and we did not have enough time to visit that many of the museums. The antiques and art centre was excellent. not very suitable for those with limited walking.

We came upon this place quite by chance. Having dropped our son off to meet a friend we thought we'd look around, we passed plenty of places to drink and eat but all seemed to be on the busy through road and we wanted to be by the river. I noticed a sign in the car park and decided to... More

We regularly pop into this fabulous shop, you never know what treasure you might find. We always have a delicious cup of real leafed tea & a huge slice of yummy cake. The tea room opens onto the river which is a perfect suntrap to watch the river go by. We highly recommend a visit. They inspired me to open... More

Cream tea (coffee for me) was yummy and visiting with my little dog she was served two bone biscuits. That is what I call being made welcome!! Anyone having a moan needs to take a breath and think again! Nothing to adversely criticise at all. And while we were there "pirates" sailed up and down the Severn!! A lovely peaceful... More
